Question about RCA F36715 36" TV

2 Answers

Good morning. I've had this tv since December 2001. No major problems until now. All of a sudden I have no sound whatsoever. You hear a hissing sound and thats it. What would the problem be and how much would you think would cost and is it worth it to fix it? Thank you, Vanessa Mazzocca.

    Thank you but I found the problem.

    My brother had the same problem and it was not the TV at all.

    It was the Rogers digital box.

    I unplugged the box to reboot and the problem is solved.

    Thank you very much.

Vanessa,

you are lucky if the issue is just the speakers, the wires can be loose or the speaks may have gone bad. in this case a good soldering job worth 10$ can do the trick, else a replacement speakers worth 20$ will do.

if the issue is the control board and the audio chip, that is when it gets serious. an audio chip can be replaced but must be done by a pro since you need 62 pins to be solders separately, plus the chip costs around 50$..

hope this helps

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Please reset the TV by unplugging the power cord for more than 4 hours and plug it back in. Now check that the sound is coming normally from the set. You’ll need to also check these parts---

Breakdown or overheating of some components of amplifier, wiring, speakers, function settings, power supply and sound detector inside the signal IC processors are fine.


Go to the on-screen-display and make sure you are set for stereo audio. Please check that the on screen display is set up for internal speakers and stereo audio. Also, check any other settings that may have gotten disturbed accidentally. Make sure that all the settings are correct and that the internal switch on the back is set right. Use headphones and check if you’re getting sound through them. You’ll need to check that the issue is with the speakers, wiring or the amplifiers.


If still the issue is not resolved then check the audio chips are fine. If you’re using RCA cables then switch to HDMI and vice-versa. If any of these components are gone bad then it will not cost much and worth to be repaired. Otherwise I’ll recommend that you better buy a new set as a set of this age might not be worth repairing.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I have a problem with hiss coming from the sound bar (ZBase 550 HSD) when using my digital cable box. It is not an issue with PS3 etc. I have the sound on the cable box turned to max, but I still hear a...


Hello ZVOX Owner,
The hiss you hear is generated by the analog audio output of the cable box. The best way to eliminate this hiss to use the digital output of the cable box. The preferred way to do this is to connect the digital audio output of both your cable box and your PS3 to the your TV (I presume your TV has two digital audio inputs.)
Your TV has a digital audio output. You should connect the digital audio output of your TV to the digital input of the ZVOX.
This should reduce or eliminate the hiss and provide convenient video source selection via the TV.

From what I'm seeing online, the bulbs in the Ambilight may be the culprit. I also read that a firmware upgrade could fix the issue too. There was also a recall of some TV's with that issue, so I would check with Philips about your model and serial number and see if your TV was included in the recall. If you raise enough cain and threaten to never buy from them again, they may get your set fixed for you... even if the warranty is up!

Good luck and please post feedback!

HT27546 turned off and won't turn back on


Sounds like it is probably just a fuse inside the t.v. May also have a bad diode. I would take it in for an est. if you don't feel good about replacing the fuse. Always have your t.v. unplugged when working on it.

PS32500 32" TV Problem


The sound that you hear is coming from the sound detector not working or not receiving any audio. If the set is set to a second audio (SAP) program this could be you trouble. Some programs are broadcast this way. (such as Spanish for Spanish speaking people. Check you audio program settings.

1 Answer

Hissing Sound


A hissing sound that comes from the back of the set (not from the speaker) usually indicates a high voltage leak, most likely around the "suction cup" at the top of the picture tube or around the flyback transformer. Remove the back of the set and turn it on, and when you hear the hissing sound, shut off all the lights in the room and you should be able to see a purple-ish or white-ish glow from the spot that is hissing. Shut the set off, discharge the high voltage and clean and seal the problem area. Of course this should be done by someone experienced with stopping high voltage leaks.
